My research for the last two novels in the Southern Fraud series has yielded a number of great ideas. I’ve read so many “inspiring” (aka wacky) stories of fraud that my imagination is overflowing. I want to tell so many stories, but not all of them will fit properly into the novel series. These ideas would, however, work perfectly as stand-alone novellas.
That’s when I thought of something new: Southern Fraud Case Files, shorter books–about 1/3 the length of the novels–that feature Julia and Vincent doing what they do best.
My first priority will always be the novels, but because a great deal of the production time is devoted to editing and proofreading them, I’m left with some time on my hands while the editors work their magic. I don’t have enough time to start another novel, but definitely enough time to write something shorter.
So what do you think? Would you read the Southern Fraud Case Files?
